I am the Assistant Director for Teacher Programs at the Newberry Library and a graduate student in the Graduate School of Library and Information Science at UIUC's LEEP program. In many ways, my ambition is to be a traditional librarian--developing collections, answering reference questions, and so on--yet I'm very interested in how technology can reduce the friction that many of these activities generate. My interest in computers, programming, and the web is relatively new and I'm eager to learn more from all of the THATCampers.
